BJCP judging Aroma: Good sweet maltiness with some roast and chocolate quality. 9/12 Appearance: Low head, Dark red brown, very clear, low retention. 2/3 Flavour: Lovely malt sweetness, mild roast - well restrained. Good dry finish. 17/20 Mouthfeel: Light body - More would be nice. 3/5 Overall Impression: Lovely malt flavours though a bit thin for the style - Great effort but could be more substantial. 8/10
